birdie99 sees the comparison to the story of roots. women of color. slaves and wives were subjected to brutal attacks and nobody heard their screams. childbirth followed with its own special cries. indeed there must have been many cries that went up to heaven during the years of bondage.

i is for industry.
heavy industry such as steel making and light industry such as housekeeping.

natural intelligence is what we are born with and develop.
artificial intelligence or robotics involves creation of machines that move about and help human masters by performance of tasks.
csail stands for computer science and artificial intelligence laboratories such as csail.mit.edu
did you know mit offers its intelligence free? not its credentials but its intelligence and this is huge.
the obvious barrier is simply are you smart enough to make use of what we provide?
jcalegacygrp wants to imitate that model. our ocean is big enough for a whale to swim in but shallow enough for a baby to wade in. wanna dive to the deepest depths or skim the surface? its up to you.

is a baby better off aborted,
discarded as an infant, or does the state of texas offer hope for the hopeless.

birdie99 proposes therapy that involves memories of childhood
whether those mems are good or bad, to help the newly injured find a path to recovery. chris and dana reeve blazed a trail and chris wrote a couple of books we can use with them.
birdie99 knows that if randy rhone had come along in their youth they would have been interested in helping him. now in their death they inspire me
to help survivors recover. abc news and cbs news and pbs news bring us stories all the time.
birdie99 hopes that some of these stories end up at the 87th academy awards. Ramona with Jean two friends whose entire friendship was by telephone.

2007/7/22 birdie99 on 43things calls her sunday schoolers to imagine a world in which only the wheel has been invented.
birdie99 knows that before the wheel there were no carriages no carts and men were assisted by other men and by animals to carry heavy loads.
birdie99 knows that the bicycle and the airplane are closely related and that as time went on the landing gear evolved as a three point arrangement of wheels underneath the plane.
birdie99 knows that the car with its four wheels more closely resembles a train car than it does an airplane. so when mike corbin created his three wheel chassis and outfitted it with electric motor, his invention was more aircraft than automobile and it was certainly more than a motorcycle with side car.
Onstar offers a level of communication. two way communication not seen since the heyday of C W McCall and the convoy of truckers using citizens band radio.
Onstar should adopt the nmg as its sales representative because it is tailored to the needs of just one but can represent a population of thousands through the internet
76 thousand fema trailers are still housing survivors who are out of touch with the rest of the world. onstar could change all that, or even a dish network provider.

birdie99 hopped on the internet 1999/august and found the limitations of webtv.net but even with an inferior browser, miss jean valrae crotty was bound to succeed because of WHO she was.
birdie99 was namesake to margaret valrae lynch who was called lynchy by the dahlinger family. crotty and dahlinger were friends and now crottys are determined to restore the dahlinger family to its rightful place in ford history
birdie99 thinks we should leave aside any emphasis on the parentage of john dahlinger and get right to the heart of the issue which was that ray dahlinger was a loyal friend to henry ford and henry ford would not want him airbrushed out of history. 5 years ago
2007/7/21 birdie99 on 43things would like to fling wide the prison doors. the trouble is that zoos and assylums are places of refuge and therefore to be preferred to freedom.

2007/7/21 birdie99 on 43things notes that to appeal the termination of her parental rights she was expected to file an affidavit of indigence not just once but twice.
birdie99 notes that doctors and lawyers are so thoroughly entrenched in texas that unless you have a lawyer on retainer and a physician assured he will be overpaid for caring for you, neither the law nor medicine will take your case.
birdie99 hopes that palliative care will be available for her as it was for her mom, and that instead of surviving the additional 38 years she can just go now.

birdie99 faced a lot of downs in her life but they just seem to keep coming. she marries a sci-tbi survivor whose disability is not revealed until after her first child is born with down syndrome and randy rhone has anger management issues, to put it at its sweetest. fact is he turned into a raving lunatic and all the hospital personnel could think of was to get him off premises asap!
birdie99 is now uniquely qualified to talk about ptsd.
post traumatic stress disorder can be acquired by a caregiver
that is if he/she survives.
birdie99 hopes that the drug propanalol can help veterans.
in previous wars veterans became homeless and unwanted because there was no treatment available for flashbacks and terrors of re-living the horrors of combat.

2007/7/21 birdie99 on 43things hopes the reader will join the search for the one living son of john cote dahlinger.
birdie99 hopes the reader is curious enough to read the book titled The Secret Life of Henry Ford and consider the dna evidence that could be collected from bill ford, who we know is truly a ford son, and the grandson of evangeline cote dahlinger who we think may have kept a secret her whole life as to the identity of her son John.
birdie99 knows that in the end the father of the child may be neither Ray Dahlinger nor Henry Ford, because Evangeline was a very unique and liberated woman born in 1893. 5 years ago
2007/7/21 birdie99 on 43things has paid a high price for believing in pixie dust.
birdie99 in fact lost custody of her last born child because the psychologist thought she had low self esteem and engaged in too much magical thinking.
birdie99 posits a world in which our lack of imagination has actually claimed lives. one salient example is 911.
birdie99 notes that osama repeatedly warned of his intentions and even in 1993 a bomb exploded at the trade towers. the usa was exposed as a paper tiger with a lack of imagination that fateful day.
birdie99 notes that on that day something else was revealed. the heroic spirit of todd beamer and passengers on united 93.
birdie99 hopes the reader will find lisa beamer and help her save the next generation of american youth from arrogance and pride and also from apathy 5 years ago
2007/7/21 birdie99 on 43things recalls 1999/9/15 larry gene ashbrook went to the wedgwood baptist church and randomly executed members of the congregaton before turning the gun on himself.

what larry genes brother failed to do was warn authorities. this is not all his fault because authorities are hard to warn.
birdie99 knows that events like Columbine and Oklahoma City and Virginia Tech pull us all up short. mental health issues boiling under the surface often go unnoticed amid the noise and haste of everyday living.

birdie99 aka jean herndon wed randy rhone over the protests of her mother but with the blessing of emory davenport md
birdie99 acquired a disabling condition when the dna in her embryo dictated that she was to be femme rather than male.
birdie99 believes that brains of femmes and brains of males ARE wired differently and that being primates we must rely on primate behavior to understand all this.
birdie99 was born 1945 and had the usual drive to find a mate that all girls born then did.
birdie99 was a woman who loved too much. she believed in fixer upper lovers. so when she met randy rhone she was drawn to him.
birdie99 feels this should not be viewed as a bad thing in women, however, women should be protected when the man she tries to love back to wellness turns on her and attacks her.
birdie99 has no videotape as the victim on abcnews 2006/10/27 did. video validation therefore is something she craves.
birdie99 hopes that someone tracks down randy rhone in some nursing home and captures some images of him. perhaps if the sands in her hourglass do not run out too soon, she too can be caught on tape for the 87th academy awards.

birdie99 knows that DNA is key to revealing the true paternity of john c dahlinger.
birdie99 believes the Ford Family should be forced to reinstate the Dahlinger Family to its prominence in the interest of true history.
birdie99 recalls that Heinlein wrote of bastardy in Stranger in a Strange Land and perhaps that is why miss jean valrae crotty became fixed on sci-fi.
birdie99 notes that Strom Thurmond admitted to Essie Mae Washington Williams that he fathered her as a young man.
birdie99 thinks Henry Ford may have thought he fathered John whether in fact he did or not.
